Republicans say this of the Bush era before the Wall Street meltdown of 2007-2009. "Those first six years of Bush were economically sound, with full employment numbers, low inflation, and steady growth. Until the housing bubble burst." YES, it was a BUBBLE economy! The Bush tax cut, two wars, socialist Medicare Prescription, Republican ethanol mandates, Republican pork barrel K-Street spending, Republican "Dream Down Payment Act" over-stimulated the economy. The Bush administration hollowed out finacial regulations. The Republican party is still Keynesian to this day in the fact that they have a slobbering love affair with big government and tax cuts.

But Billary was the primary instigator in all of the housing bubble.

Supporters of limited government have little to cheer about today (and Romney winning wouldn’t have changed that in my opinion), so I’m going to point out a small glimmer of hope. In Pennsylvania’s 79th district, voters elected a local finance professor and radio host named John McGinnis to the state House of Representatives. A lot of Republicans talk a good game about liberty and smaller government – “Dr. John” eats it for breakfast.

Now I’m fully aware that unconventional candidates for public office generally have their best chance for success in lower profile races. The 79th district is also solidly Republican and so...
